JOHANNESBURG - The JG Zuma Foundation says the recent ruling by the Supreme court of Appeals is unclear and to proceed with a criminal trial against the former president would be a travesty of justice.

The appeals court dismissed Jacob Zuma's leave to appeal his corruption prosecution.

This included his attempt to remove State advocate Billy Downer from the trial.

The foundation says the ruling is vague and does not serve justice because it does not provide reasons for the dismissal.

Zuma's corruption trial is due to start on 11 April.

He and French arms company Thales face several charges of corruption, racketeering, fraud and money laundering linked to the multi-billion rand arms deal.
